AND ASURIC FORMS OF MYSTICISM
army of the Gods must be raised to counter the army of the Asuras. A
new Indra (king of the Gods) must manifest to lead the Gods to a new
victory over the Asuras. A Divine devotion and selfless force must
emerge to counter the human devotion and blind faith of the Asuric
nature. This is the real challenge to Dharmic traditions that they
must now take up or perhaps perish. The Asuras in their passion can
defeat the Gods who are lazy and complaisant.
A sincere Asuric passion is more compelling to the human heart
than a weak or devitalized Divine vision. It is perhaps the loss of
vital energy in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions that allowed them
to be defeated and overcome by less evolved but more determined
religious groups in the first place.
the message of Deva and Asura is that one must not only beware of
falling into an Asuric mode, but of becoming so passive in a higher
Dharma that Asuric forces are encouraged to attack.
In this regard Hindus should blame
their own weakness and lack of response for the perpetuation of
Asuric beliefs in India. Had Hindus been united and strong in their
own Dharma this would not have occurred. Similarly if Hindus not
only unite but also regenerate a dynamic energy and warrior strength
of Dharma, they can once more overcome these Asuric forces or even
redeem them and bring them once more over to the side of the Gods.
